The T-shirt dress came back into style at the same time as the shift dress. Shift dresses and T-shirt dresses are dresses that hang from your shoulders all the way down without hugging your body. This style of dress originally came around in the 1960s with the hippie movement. With in the past few years they have made a comeback. By flattering almost all different body types, a shift dress or T-shirt dress is great trend to invest in.

This Fashionista is rocking a classic black T-shirt dress form Brandy Melville. By adding a pop of color from a simple necklace, this dress becomes dressy. By adding a metallic flash tattoo with some color, the look gets even more put together. Pairing the dress with strappy sandals, this simple dress easily became a casual, yet dressy outfit.
